Ont.Bill 535-05 non- Ethanol fuel
Permalink  
 


I found about this bill while getting "NON-Ethanol " fuel at Island gas on Reserve, attendant said as of Jan. 1st. no more non ethanol,so I checked it out on line,can't make head nor tail of "mumbo Jumble" so I called a member of the SVAO & they have been having meetings with GOV. & got some info and background, long story short it will be up to suppliers whether they supply it?? They must have a total of 15% ethanol fuels so right now the plan is 10% in reg. & 5% in mid-grade!! Damage to engines was brought up to Lab techs, that were were present but hit a "stone wall there" as they stated that "no damage" was recorded in tests, but they were only a hour or 2 of running fuel!!!!! Also brought up was that some NEW vehicles must use the NON- Ethanol" fuel or Warr. VOID so it appears that if the demand is there it "should be available"  Marine interest was also present!!!!

That ethanol content of 10% “regular” and 5% “mid-grade is the standard right now. The new push by the government (sponsored largely by the corn lobby) is to have 15% ethanol in “regular” grade gas. I’m not sure how that “averaging” thing works but I’ll bet the “mid-grade” (89 octane) will end up with 10% while “premium” grade (91 octane and higher) will have no ethanol, just like now at most stations. The manual for my 2018 SUV says that 15% is OK but nothing higher. I think the solution for older vehicles that won’t tolerate ethanol is to use the premium grade. Better to pay a higher price at the pumps now than a much higher price for repairs in the shop later!

Petro 94 contains 10%.  Shell ultra is supposed to be ethanol free but whatever was left in the pipes from the guy before you goes into your tank.  Rubber in the fuel system is the biggest issue and should be serviced with new stuff.  Brass floats and upgraded needles are also a good move if you have an older carb.  Its here to stay.
